Fordham JUST accepted me off waitlist but I already committed elsewhere?!

I am so frustrated. Fordham was my top choice, but I was originally waitlisted and only got accepted today. I didn't want to risk waiting until the last minute to commit to a college, so I already committed to Temple University in Philadelphia, PA as a psychology major.

I am really torn between the two schools now. And I don't have long to decide. My main question is, how reputable is Fordham University compared to Temple? Or in general? What is the academic rigor like, and how "difficult" is it to maintain a high GPA? I am a student who gets stressed out very easily and have a lot of testing anxiety, but want to do well. I think I have a better chance of maintaining a high GPA at Temple, but I am concerned about how reputable these schools are to future job prospects.

My GPA was a 3.6 and SAT was a 1240, in case anyone was wondering. I also got accepted to SUNY Stony Brook and Binghamton.

    If you are happy with Temple, don’t second guess your choice unless Fordham costs less. That would be what I would tell my ds20.

    Okay, thanks. This is the same advice I received from my friends and family so I will be taking it as Fordham costs significantly more.
